As part of the University of Miami nursing program, the university’s nursing students travel outside the United States for field work. This week they are traveling to Thomonde, Haiti to work with Project Medishare’s in country staff, doctors, nurses and health agents.
During their time in Haiti’s central plateau they will participate in all aspects of the community health program and school health activities. This includes doing home visits, working in the clinics and participating in the school health immunization program.
Project Medishare’s Program Coordinator Gabrielle Denis and the UM nursing students will be sharing their images and stories from the field between now and January 11.
